“I will betroth you to Me forever. Yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in lovingkindness and in compassion. And I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness. Then you will know the LORD.” (Hos.2:19-20)
Does not this make your heart burn within you? Your God loves you and it is His good pleasure to comfort you. He may ordain anything He wills in your life for your good and His glory but in those things is His presence and comfort. Be encouraged today and thank Him for each moment that you have whether with affliction or none knowing that He is a merciful and loving God who is with you for eternity. We could ask no more than this: to be betrothed to our God forever! What a joy and what peace this gives to a “marching pilgrim saint” on the way home. His promises: We can “fix our eyes” on Christ and our New Jerusalem, our heavenly home. We have an Advocate, always present, always listening, always loving and comforting His people and therein lies your peace in the storm in His everlasting arms and on His wings. Thanks be to God!
Living Coram Deo,
